The hair cut has happened!!!!!!
Miss Gorgeous finally talked me into the ultimate haircut experience today!
She actually booked me in and paid for my "do" as a 50th birthday present from her - how cool!!!!
We went to "Beaumont on Beaumont" and you have never seen anyone squirm in the seat as much as I did...I was glad that Miss Gorgeous was there with me!
We went from the "hair cut consultation" and "you have a small face and pointy nose, so I can't work miracles" talk to the "colour consultation" and endless questions..."do you want to go lighter or darker, do you want streaks?( oh sorry they are now called "foils" - streaks are so 1980's ).
So, of course I said, "I have no idea what I want".......
But away we went..
Colour done and there I sat looking like I landed from outer space with aluminium foil in my hair and gloopy colour poking out...charming.
All this time to worry........
Then, a wash and back in the hot seat for the cut.....
So he starts...
all the while saying, it WILL look good when you blow dry it.
Not giving me confidence here..
Then he dissappears.
So I stare at the mirror.
Then the blow dry lady comes over and starts blow drying.
I'm looking, and looking...and Miss Gorgeous turns to me and says, Well do you like it? You're looking a bit like Carol Brady ( the mother from the Brady Bunch ).
Indeed I do.
As the blow dry lady starts with the straightening iron I then go from Carol Brady to Julie Andrews ( some of you young things would not know these people ).
So Mr. Stylist guy returns and I lay it on the line....
"Get rid of the Carol Brady look!!!!"
So he gets out his snippers and goes to work and I end up with something that I actually like very much!
Now...how do I keep it looking this way??????
It's so stressful being old!
